Urban Growth Boundaries

We have conducted extensive studies on establishing urban growth boundaries (UGBs) and evaluate UGBs using both conventional and new data supported by quantitative methods like constrained cellular automata. Please refer to the Urban Growth Boundaries channel for more information ( 

Planning Support Systems

Please see our project Planning Support Systems (

Applied Urban Modeling

Please see our project BUDEM (

We also have online course ( and offline course () in the Courses channel ( 

Big Data Analytics

We believe that big data and new data are having great opportunities for supporting spatial plans. We have a lot of projects on the direction and courses (online MOOC and offline). We also have published a national level textbook on big data and urban planning.
